Empowering Innovation: Hydraulic Institute Annual Conference 2024

At Ergoseal, we're committed to staying at the forefront of industry trends and innovations to better serve our clients and enhance our products. In that spirit, we’re associate members of the Hydraulic Institute (HI), an association of pump experts that develops standards and promotes education about proper pump selection and usage. Our Director of Engineering, Ryan Neris, recently had the opportunity to attend the 2024 HI Annual Conference in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Networking opportunities at the conference also proved invaluable, allowing him to connect with fellow experts and professionals in the field.

“The events provide traction and in-person engagement to behind-the-scenes work on HI standards, workshops, and reporting on past and future goings-on in the industry,” he says, citing the biggest highlight of the event as making connections with HI members in the industry.

Their knowledge, experience, stories, warm welcome, and opportunities for future collaboration always make me walk away with inspiration and new ideas.

These connections fostered meaningful collaborations and partnerships that will further strengthen Ergoseal's position as a leader in fluid sealing solutions.
